Handel’s ceremonial music for the Water Music began this year’s concert in the Headmaster Porter Theatre.

Among the other ensembles in the concert was Fletcher’s “Folk Suite”, which was given a sensitive rendition by the String Orchestra under Helen Orsler’s direction.

The concert band enlivened the mood with music from Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, the jazz band encouraged everyone that it’s “Hip To Be Square”, while the choir concluded proceedings with Chilcott and Mozart.

Also featuring in the successful concert was a showcase of the forthcoming production of “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum”, which will be staged in the Headmaster Porter Theatre between December 5 and 7.
